Don’t Show Favouritism

My dear brothers and sisters, how can you claim to have faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ if you favor some people over others?
(James 2:1 NLT)

Even the best of us are guilty of showing favouritism. But did you know that God is against it? The Bible tells us that God doesn’t show favouritism (Acts 10:34), and neither should we. God taught Peter an important lesson about favouritism (see Acts 10:9-47), and if need be, He’ll teach us too. I’ve often been convicted by the passage in James 2:1 and it has become my prayer that God will keep me from showing favouritism. God has honoured this prayer over and over again, and He’ll do the same for you if you’ll ask Him.

God doesn’t show favouritism and neither should we.
